The way there was very nice, away from the well-known paths and routes. The Hugobahn was partially closed, we had to take a detour. From the heap you should take the same as up. The route suggested by Komoot is absolutely unsuitable for normal bikes or e-bikes. Return on a lot of road but with bike paths and in Horst past the Lenin monument. From Essen-Karnap we are the mountain route that leads to Finca Barcelona on Westfalenstr. leads driven. Unfortunately my battery has said goodbye. It was 55 km in total.
An absolute highlight was the old mining settlement on the Grawenhof apart from the Rungenberg dump.

The total distance was 40.3 km, the tour recording has been canceled in the meantime, of course I did not drive through the Rotbachsee. Pay attention to the detour at km 14 and go straight through the airport area at km 30, so you don't have to cross the busy federal road three times.

This connection from the Springorum cycle path to the Jahrhunderthalle via the Parkband-West is a good alternative to the usual routes, since it almost only leads via cycle paths. It also offers the opportunity to explore the Westpark with the Jahrhunderthalle. We saved the branch at Engelburg to Sauren Wiese, where there was a forced labor camp, because this area is already known from the mining hiking trail in Wattenscheid.
